On 4 September 2013, at 7:48 a.m., Bethlehem police responded to a motor vehicle crash on Shimersville Rd near the intersection of Applebutter Rd. The crash involved an SUV and a smaller car. As both vehicles were heading North on Shimersville Rd, they came into contact, and this caused the SUV to go out of control and roll over. In the process, the sole occupant (driver) of the SUV was ejected. She was transported to St. Luke’s UniversityHospital where she is in critical condition.
The driver of the other vehicle was not hurt. The exact reason the two vehicles came into contact is still being investigated by the City of Bethlehem Accident Reconstruction Team. The names of the vehicle operators are not being released at this time.
